Late night notes

Is anyone else experiencing a long wait before blogs load? You'll have to bear with me regarding the reading of journals and updates on Facebook.

And is there anyone out there that cares a pin that Michael Jackson will finally leave the music scene this year? I'm not among them.

Was watching a very nice program tonight about a tour around the Arctic with Glasgow comedian Billy Connolly. Stunning landscapes in Alaska, wow.

And a trip down memory lane earlier in the evening with Ballykissangel, which was first transmitted by the BBC in 1996.

The Australian state of Queensland is eyeballing tropical cyclone Hamish, which is winding up some 200 miles north of Cairns. This storm will skirt the east coast of the state, and I have this hunch that it could get quite nasty.


  1. It's a shame that Michael Jackson went from such a talent to a nutcase. I'd cross to the other side of the street if I saw him coming, I tell you.

  2. I noticed that blogs were loading very slowly for sure and in some instances it just said 'server error'. Now it all seems to be working ok so whatever happened they must have worked it out.

  3. YES, everything has been very sluggish tonight. Glad to know it's not just me.

    Michael Jackson hasn't been relevant for a long time. Sad.


  4. Some have been very slow, others have not. I could not give a hoot about Michael Jackson. I have been following Billy Connolly as well. Stunning scenery and good lessons on history. He makes it so enjoyable.
